Just a few days ago I was sad and dejected. That word "unsuccessful" loomed large in my vision. But with 94 people pledging over $4,000, how could that be anything but success? I just did my math wrong. People are worth more than money and the connections I've made with you are a treasure.
The re-launched, re-vamped, re-worked version of World Song is going strong and nearly done. We're at 86% funding with only $540 needed to hit the goal. And the current number of backers over there is only up to 55 people. This update is reaching 94 people who pledged to the first round.
That tells me a few things:
- We have new supporters for the book that we didn't have before.
- Every pledge counts - especially the $5, $10 and $25 pledges.
- There's (at least) 39 more people who believe in this book and are excited to make history.
I'm posting this over on the active project as well, but I'll tell you first. If this project is funded by the end of the day Sunday (I'll count that as 11:59pm Pacific time) then 5% of all book profits until the end of 2012 will be donated to My Voice Music, a Portland non-profit that "engages marginalized youth in music and performance in order to promote self-esteem, social skills and emotional expression."
Help us support this worthy charity and bring music into more lives.
